I have the inductance of the long coil which is

L=( Meu (not)* N^2 * A ) / (D)

A = Area , D = Length , N = number of turns in the coil

I need to prove that for a short coil the inductance (L) is the following:

L =[( Meu (not)* N^2 * A ) / (D)] * [ [{(D^2 - a^2)^(1/2)} - a ] / (D)] ]

a = radius of the coil

A = 3.14 a^2
